AR# 42803: Aurora 64b/66b - BitGen Errors in the 13.2 ISE Software
Aurora 64b/66b - BitGen Errors in the 13.2 ISE Software
When I generate a bitstream for an Aurora 64b/66b 7 series design in the 13.2 ISE software, the following error message occurs:
"ERROR:Bitgen:342 - This design contains pins which are not constrained (LOC) to a specific location or have an undefined I/O Standard (IOSTANDARD). This may cause I/O contention or incompatibility with the board power or connectivity affecting performance, signal integrity or in extreme cases cause damage to the device or the components to which it is connected. To prevent this error, it is highly suggested to specify all pin locations and I/O standards to avoid potential contention or conflicts and allow proper bitstream creation. To demote this error to a warning and allow bitstream creation with unspecified I/O location or standards, you can apply the following bitgen switch: -g UnconstrainedPins:Allow."
This error message occurs when generating the bitstream for the Aurora 64b/66b example design for the 7 series in the 13.2 ISE software. The message is regarding the following pins:
For more information about the error message and how to downgrade this to a warning message, please refer to (Xilinx Answer 41615).
